Miracles

God’s miracles do not come with drama.


You have often heard it said, “God works in mysterious ways.” And you have wished to see a miracle all your life. But the truth is, you want a miracle that brings drama.

Of course, you would like to see the dumb talk, the blind see, and the lame walk because those miracles would get a lot of attention, drama, and astonishment. But the miracles happening around you and in your community every day get no attention.

For example, you are traveling on the highway, obeying all the traffic laws, and observing the rules of a good driver. Then, suddenly an erratic driver cut you off. But through the grace of God, somehow you managed to escape with no incident, and instead of thanking the Lord for the miracle, you started to curse at the other driver.

All you wanted was to get your hands on the stupid driver. You fail to see the miracle because there was no drama surrounding it.

The young man, whom a struggling widow helped out when he was a child, decided he would help pay her monthly bills when he learned she was struggling.

Those are some of God’s mysterious works that happen daily in our communities. But you’ll never hear about them because God’s works are not surrounded by drama.

God always confound the wise to protect the faithful


Scripture has taught us that if we are faithful and true to God, He will deliver us from harm and danger. Hence, the reason why David, the Old Testament Patriarch, wrote in Psalm 23, “Even though I walk through a valley of death, I will fear no evil.

The story of the three Hebrew boys depicted in the book of Daniel is yet another example of God building a fence of protection around those who loved Him.

When King Nebuchadnezzar flexed his muscles and ordered three Hebrew boys thrown in a furnace-because, they refused to bow to him or worship his golden image. He thought they would serve as an example for others who disobeyed his orders.

But when the King walked by the furnace, he saw four men in the furnace walking around in the fire. Nebuchadnezzar was naturally confounded. But you needn’t be because you and I will never know what God will do to protect us; all you need to do is trust Him.
